This guide covers using Google Groups for Business with your work or school account, which is only available if your organization supports it. If you don't see some of these features, contact your administrator.

Groups such as project teams, departments, or classmates can communicate and collaborate using Google Groups. If you want to invite a group to an event, or share documents with a group, you can send a single email to everyone in the group.
